"The baking powder is used as a leavening agent. In short, baking powder helps to make a lighter noodle."

"Oooh I love the photo and the Momma memories. Jeez, lady, you're going to have some muscles if you keep DIY dough-ing :) I don't use baking powder in my pasta recipe - what does it do?"

Homemade Noodles

This last weekend I made homemade noodles. Quite tastey, I might add. I remember my Mother making noodles when I was little, having me help unroll them and laying them out to dry on the counter.So lately, I have been craving these noodles.. especially after telling Bryan how fantastic they were when I was little. My stories of my Mother's cooking always prompts cravings and brings nostalgia.Here is the recipe I used:Ingredients* 2 cups flour* 3 egg yolks* 1 egg* 2 teaspoons salt* 1/4-1/2 cup…See More

"Thank you so much for the tips, Trell. The homemade press is a great idea, as rolling them out is a lot of work. Last night's tortilla try went a little bit smoother. I actually used wheat flour this time and they tasted great. I think if I use…"

"A hand crank pasta machine should work fine. A tortilla press can be simply made from 2 flat sheets of wood and a hinge... Line the bottom piece with plastic wrap. place a dough ball in and cover with another piece of plastic wrap. Press and repeat.…"

I've always been in-tune with Nature and the Outdoors. When I was a little girl my imagination ran wild with beliefs of being able to speak with the animals and feel trees' emotions. All the while running free in the small Iowa town I grew up in - building forts, climbing trees, taking it open myself to have litter-pick-up days around town - viewing the world as a young conservationist.

That little girl is always with me, however the older I get the more knowledge I want to obtain. Knowledge not only to better myself and my loved ones, but knowledge to use to give my part to all that is connected. There is so much negative energy out there, even though I am but one person, I can radiate positive energy in hopes it will influence others.

I currently reside in Florida, but soon will be making the adventurous journey with my husband to Colorado. I am thrilled at the thought of crisp mountain air and the beautiful land. From this site I would love to gain knowledge on homesteading, food preservation as well as growing our own food.

Many thanks to those who created this site.

Refried Beans and tortillas

On Sunday I decided to cook homemade tortillas and refried beans. I make burritos for my Love's work lunches, and am tired of buying canned refried beans and bags of tortillas. I figured that not only would this be a fun learning adventure, but perhaps I could save a bit of money in the long run.



The refried beans were very easy to make. I rinsed some raw pinto beans, picking out any bad beans or stoney bits. Then I boiled the beans for about 2 1/2 hours - until they were soft and… Continue

Cook it yourself

First, I must say that I LOVE to cook. I picked up most of it from my Mother. I believe it is definitely an art - creating something yourself and getting to watch others enjoy it.. wonderful feeling.



So I made and baked my first bread this past Friday. It turned out wonderful! Now, I am hooked. I want to make everything from scratch! Not only do you save money, but I feel it is a whole new level of creating something beautiful with your own hands.



This morning I made… Continue
